Description
For use with the Work Panel (STF1), the kit allows several
experiments with a rigid beam.
Students or teachers fit the magnetic parts of the kit to the
Work Panel (STF1) to study or demonstrate forces,
moments and reaction forces around a rigid beam at
equilibrium.
The kit uses masses, magnetic mounts and spring balances
to apply forces to a rigid beam. Students measure the
forces around the beam at equilibrium and compare with
theoretical values found from theory of moments and
equilibrium.
The versatility of the kit means that you can set up several
different ways of supporting the beam, including simply
supported or balanced.
TecQuipment supplies each kit with a fully illustrated user
guide containing theory, experiments and typical results.
